first_imgFor some, the days between Jazz Fest weekends are a time to rest up, and a time to explore the other elements that the city of New Orleans has to offer. For others, those who affectionately refer to those three days as the “daze between,” it’s a time to keep the party going, and to seek out more music and more unique combinations of artists that you couldn’t find anywhere else. For music fans looking to fill their time with shows, you won’t find better combination of artists than the group hitting One Eyed Jacks tonight, Wednesday, May 3rd.The group, appropriately named the “Daze Between Band,” boasts an impressive lineup of players from across the musical spectrum. Guitar master Eric Krasno is on the bill, as is Dead & Company bassist Oteil Burbridge. Widespread Panic‘s Duane Trucks will be on drums, Gov’t Mule’s Danny Louis will be on keys, and Scott Metzger will fill the second guitar slot, a role he currently occupies in Joe Russo’s Almost Dead. Snarky Puppy percussionist Nate Werth and The Motet singer extraordinaire Lyle Divinsky will also join the musical party. When it comes to Jazz Fest, this is simply as good as it gets. The band will be joined by DJ Soul Sister, who will set the mood with an opening set. The band also expects a few surprise guests to join them throughout the evening.Beyond being strong musical players, this crew is deeply connected through the guidance of Col. Bruce Hampton. Oteil, having been mentored by Col. Bruce through the days of his Aquarium Rescue Unit, and Duane, who grew up with Col. Bruce as an honorary member of the Trucks family, will undoubtedly play to transcend their spiritual leader. Do not miss this show – it’s going to get weird.See below for full info for this show with the “Daze Between Band” featuring Eric Krasno, Oteil Burbridge, Duane Trucks, Danny Louis, Scott Metzger, Nate Werth, and Lyle Divinsky.– SHOW INFO –Artist: The Daze Between Band featuring Eric Krasno, Oteil Burbridge, Duane Trucks, Danny Louis, Scott Metzger, Nate Werth, and Lyle Divinsky.Venue: One Eyed Jacks – 615 Toulouse Street New Orleans, LA 70130Date: Wednesday, May 3rd, 2017Price: $35adv / $40dos (purchase tickets here)Time: Doors 11:00 PM / Show 12:00 AM (technically early AM 5/4) If you’ll be down in New Orleans for Jazz Fest this year, don’t miss out on all of the awesome late night music options taking place across the city.

first_imgBoard to debate advance funding issues in February The sticky issue of how to advise Florida Bar members whose personal injury clients might want or need “advance funding” financing is expected to be resolved at the Board of Governors February 1 meeting in Tampa.The Board Review Committee on Professional Ethics is scheduled to make its final recommendation on the issue and board members, citing the importance of giving guidance to inquiring lawyers, have said they expect to act.Advance funding is a growing industry where companies give personal injury plaintiffs money in exchange for a part of the eventual expected settlement or verdict. Interest rates have run 100 to 200 percent and more on some of the transactions, but the companies get paid only if there is a recovery.The matter began with a requested advisory opinion from the Professional Ethics Committee, which said lawyers could tell clients about advance funding but not issue a letter of protection to the advance funding company.The BRCPE, at the board’s October meeting, recommended approving the opinion, but changing it to say lawyers could issue letters of protection. Board members raised several questions and postponed a decision to do more research.At its November 30 meeting, the BRCPE reported that an Ohio appellate court had ruled advance funding schemes were loans and illegal because of the usurious rates charged. The committee asked to have until the February 1 meeting to continue its research.In the meantime, the committee and board said they would tell Bar members that the issue was still pending and about the Ohio decision, and advise them to use their best judgment when dealing with clients about advance funding. (See story in the December 15 Bar News. )On a related ethics matter, the board is expected to review proposed new Bar Procedures for Ruling on Questions of Ethics and Procedures for Issuing Advisory Opinions Relating to Lawyers Advertising and Solicitation. (See story above.)Two items included in the rewrites are clarifying that the board can request an advisory opinion from the Professional Ethics Committee and specifying that the board can issue its own ethics advisory opinion.The board will also get an update on legislative activities. The legislature will be completing the second week of its 2002 regular session when the board meets. The session is expected to focus on reapportionment and budget issues.Several reports are scheduled for the meeting, including from the City County and Local Government Law; Equal Opportunities Law; Entertainment, Arts and Sports Law; General Practice, Solo and Small Firm; Labor and Employment Law; and Tax Law sections.Fifth District Court of Appeal Judge Jacqueline Griffin will update the board on activities of the Judicial Management Council, and former Bar President Ben Hill will report on ABA matters.

first_imgOtago Daily Times 6 August 2012The Roman Catholic Bishop of Dunedin, the Most Rev Colin Campbell, received “nasty” emails after he urged Catholics to oppose a new abortion clinic for Invercargill. More than 8000 parishioners across the Otago and Southland diocese yesterday were read a letter from the bishop saying Catholics were opposed to abortion and “we must do all we can to prevent this culture of death spreading in our country”. Bishop Campbell said he had emails supportive of his stance. “But I have received some nasty emails too, and some are quite personal.” He declined to talk about the exact contents, saying only “I would describe them as offensive”. “The unfortunate thing about this is that the people think this is just a religious thing, but it not just a religious matter. “It is a human matter. “It is not just a woman’s life … There are two lives involved.” Bishop Campbell said those opposing the church’s stance tended to argue that as abortion was legal “they seem to presume that [abortion] is moral, where in fact that is not the case”. “This is taking the life of an unborn child,” he said. By opposing the Southern District Health Board’s plan to establish the Invercargill abortion service, it could potentially stop the “spread” of abortions to Dunedin and elsewhere, he said.http://www.odt.co.nz/news/dunedin/220328/bishop-gets-nasty-emails-over-abortion-cliniclast_img read more

first_imgLONDON – Largest university in London obtains injunction against student protests.The University of London has obtained a court order banning student protests on its campuses for the next six months after a demonstration against how the university is run resulted in 38 arrests last week.“This is a regrettable but necessary step that we have taken in order to prevent the type of violent and intimidating behaviour that we have seen by protesters at Senate House recently,” said Chris Cobb, Chief Operating Officer and University Secretary, regarding the injunction. Police were brought in to break up a sit-in on Wednesday after which students accused the police of assaulting students.The students’ demands include a halt to privatisation, fair pay for workers and a halt to a controversial plan to close the student union. They are protesting against the way higher education as a whole is controlled they say.The union outlined their stance, “Occupations are a legitimate form of dissent. When our university exploits our staff, shuts down our student union, and are utterly unaccountable to the students and staff that give it life and make it function, students have no choice but to gain leverage in whatever way they can.”Speaking to Anadolu Agency, Michael Chessum, president of the University of London Student union said, “I have myself been thrown to the ground and I’ve witnessed widespread violence form the police, including crutches being kicked away from under someone, a lot of swinging punches, and people being beaten to near unconsciousness during their arrest.”Some 135,090 students (approximately 5% of all UK students) attend one of the University of London’s affiliated schools.last_img read more
